Yes.

First Aid and Uworld are really key to exam.you read FA,then do questions, you will see it as a bullet point given in FA.But to do FA you really need a strong background knowledge

I think it really depends how good is your basic. How old graduate are you. IMG or AMG....

For a average person or old graduate, UW + FA is not enough to score 99. Ya, it could be enough to score 90+

Yes, most of the thing they ask is from FA + UW, but you won't be able to ans if you don't have strong basic.

I would suggest going through kaplan once and then to FA + UW.
